Interested in sending texts from your existing landline or business phone number? As a paid user you can port your existing business line into MessageDesk at no additional cost.

All you'll need to do is email josh@messagedesk.com to get started with the process. Just send an email with the subject line: Number Hosting Request and write the phone number you'd like to move into MessageDesk

From here, Josh will let you know if your number is able to be hosted on MessageDesk. If so, you'll then be asked to complete a Letter of Authorization where you'll approve the porting process.

What is Number Porting vs Hosting?

Number porting is when you switch phone providers entirely while maintaining the same number! This is common for people who are activating a phone line they turned off.

Switching phone providers can be intimidating though.

That's why MessageDesk will use Number Hosting to send and receive messages on your behalf.

What is Number Hosting?

Number Hosting is when you keep your existing phone provider + phone number while enabling texting in MessageDesk with your current phone number.

It's called "Hosting" since MessageDesk will "host" the numbers SMS/MMS messaging while your existing calling/voice service will not be interrupted

You would keep your existing phone provider for voice, but we would provide you with messaging capability.

How do I start the Process?

We can get you started whether you want to number port or feature port.

Again, this depends on who your existing phone provider is.

Get started by clicking the button below to email us. Use the subject line: Number Hosting and send us your existing number in the email so we can find out if you are eligible.
